Fort St. John, B.C. – All Sam Grenon wants is his coin back.

Grenon’s truck was broken into the night of July 6th and his wallet and laptop were stolen.47779_Coin_Side1_Crop_thumbnail

Among the items taken was a coin he made following the sudden and tragic death of his young son a few months ago.

Sam had made a set of matching coins – one coin was interned with his son at the funeral while he carried the other with him in his wallet.

“Honestly, I don’t expect to see my money again and I’ve cancelled my credit cards, but that coin is very important to me,” says Grenon. “I’m not interested in having anyone arrested or charged. I just want to have the coin that reminds me of my son.”

The coin is silver; on side of the coin is the word ‘Love’, on the other is a heart with a Celtic knot engraved inside.47780_Coin_Knot_thumbnail

Anyone who comes across this coin is asked to turn it in at the Fort St. John Visitor Centre which is located at the Pomeroy Sports Centre. No questions asked.


How unfortunate, this man loses his son, and then a cherished symbol that connects him to his departed son… hope he gets his coin back.

I’m so sorry for you loss Mr. Grenon. I sincerely hope whomever stole your coin realizes it has no financial benefit to them and returns it to you; since it is irreplaceable to you.

How devastating! Our condolences to the loss of your son whom you loved so much! Never leave anything of value in a parked vehicle! Never! I hope you get this item back again! Miracles still do happen!
